21-year-old bedroom pop sensation Cuco graced Toronto’s very own Mod Club Theatre on September 25, 2019. The show was as great a visual experience as it was a sonic experience due to Cuco showing up on all fronts. He performed hit songs such as “Hydrocodone” and “Bossa No Sé” — all while being sick. Despite the illness, being a natural born performer, Cuco delivered a very strong performance and greatly appeased his dedicated fan base.
One of Cuco’s most notable traits is his carefree personality and laid back demeanor. This is definitely reflected through Cuco’s performance. While his stage aura was not one of a rock star or hard-hitter — in the sense that he did not constantly, aggressively jump around or conventionally try to engage the crowd — it was true to himself and his style. The crowd was well engaged in sonic unison and emotional unison; Cuco’s soothing vocals were constantly accompanied by the sold out Mod Club. The best way to describe the performance would be “effortlessly great” where Cuco was truly giving it his all while maintaining his nonchalant charm.
Cuco has seen recent viral growth in his career and Melodic Magazine is excited to follow it every step of the way. The young star also strives to use his platform for the greater good as he recently headlined “Solidarity for Sanctuary” — a benefit concert series organized by himself and manager Doris Muñoz for immigrant rights, namely for immigrant families that are at risk of being deported. This issue hits home both individuals, as they are first-generation Americans and children of immigrants. It is inspiring to see an artist — and manager — receive viral success and not become overwhelmed by the perks of stardom, but rather become humble and authentic. We look forward to what Cuco and his team will be up to next.
